Are We There Yet?

Every one can I’m sure imagine that annoying child who asks 300 times if they have arrived at the destination… it’s me I’m that kid. We have reached mid January also known as half way to cabin fever crazy can’t wait until spring time. As I aimlessly scroll through Facebook and see all my fellow sheep farmers have started lambing my farming soul gets itchy. Much to my ewes dismay I start staring at them. The staring is usually followed…

Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup

As a busy farm mom the need for me to have quick easy healthy meals is huge!  Let’s be honest I’m also super cheap so when everyone was getting a Instant Pot I got a electric pressure cooker.  In essence these are in fact the same thing but mine only has three buttons which makes converting recipes sometimes difficult.  Here is a super simple soup recipe for those nights you totally forgot to get anything out for dinner.  I put…

Listening to the horses munch on their breakfast, collecting those yummy farm fresh butt nuggets the chickens leave me and greeting my sheep each day. Most days this is the best way to start my day … except today was totally different. There is an order in which things must be done each morning to prevent total mayhem and chaos. First you fill the horse feeders and add their supplements. Next…

I began my approach to the lair of Rooster Soup hoping to have…

I pulled my very first lambs ever last Friday and only the little ram lamb survived. Mom didn’t want the little lamb and he was really struggling so we brought him into the house to feed him as a bottle lamb. Over 24 hours he did great and I was really hopeful for him! When the little buffalo had her lambs Purl the ewe’s lambs I had pulled Friday seemed extremely interested in them so Jeff and I brought the…

Yesterday after lunch I decided that I wanted to walk out…

Raising children and running a farm is no easy task. Our oldest daughter is now 2 years old just old enough she thinks she can help and do everything herself. For the last 9 months I’ve been growing her baby sister. As the days grew closer to my due date I wondered how my princess would respond to no longer being an only child. Henley however surprised me once again by being the best big sister ever so far. She…
